Heckuva job, Congress!

We'll show those Palestinians! Who cares about literacy or education for young girls! From Ynet:

UNESCO, which protects historic heritage sites and works to improve literacy, access to schooling for girls and cultural understanding, is clearly scrambling after the loss of its biggest donor. Canada and Israel have also pulled funding, though they donate far less.
